DOZENS OF CUNY FACULTY IN PROTEST
HEAD TO JAIL v. SCHOOL
Barbara Bowen, President, Professional Staff Congress/CUNY
and protesting workers
âCUNY Needs A Raise,â âStop the War on CUNY,â
âNo More Excuses Chancellor Milliken"
Several dozen City University of New York faculty members were arrested
in the latest of a series of escalating protests as part of a demand for
salary increases. CUNYâs roughly 25,000 faculty and professional staff
members have been without a contract since 2010 and have had no
salary increases in that time. Just before the civil disobedience occurred
and after an announcement of a strike authorization vote the CUNY
Administration finally put an offer on the table, but the Professional Staff
Congress, which represents the workers vows to keep the pressure on
as the proposal falls far short of what is needed to pay staff decently for
the important work they do. Chancellor Milliken's offer represents a failure
on CUNY management's part to secure sufficient investment by Gov.
Cuomo/New York State in the people who make college education
possible for half a million working New Yorkers, for the immigrants and
people of color of this city.
